Shalyn Coleman is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Warwick, Rhode Island. She specializes in anxiety, depression, grief and loss, OCD, safety concerns, trauma, and women’s mental health.
Shalyn’s approach is both compassionate and skills-based. When she works with clients who have social anxiety, for example, she’ll help them learn to sit with the unknown – eventually growing to tolerate such stress in a manner that feels manageable and comfortable.
In her work regarding women’s mental health, Shalyn helps clients identify red flags in relationships, as well as end the ones that no longer serve them. A fierce advocate for women’s personal empowerment, she helps female clients to break undesirable cycles, set relationship boundaries, and attain independence.
Additionally, Shalyn helps clients who have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). She uses Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) treatment, widely considered the most effective and evidence-supported treatment for the treatment of OCD with or without medication. She may utilize ERP as a standalone treatment, or couple it with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Shalyn strongly believes that with acceptance, comes change – and she looks forward to helping each client enact positive change in their lives.
